[ house of pain ] [ sell, sell, sell ] >> who refuse to do anything that can be considered mildly positive. i throw some gym shorts on and a workout shirt. we did the show from happy valley a couple years ago and i blast the televisions while on
the treadmill listening to a fan of the darkness, "call me maybe" and "payphone," the profane version, so i can drown out the gloom of the team on tv. sure enough, there are some guests on talking about how the world will end august 20th. always like a goes of certainty. that's the day greece will default on the last bailout. and make a mental note to stock up on canned goods on the 19th. and switch to "go your own way" by fleetwood mac because i'm really old. the expert is jabbering about the spanish treasury which will bring down italy, the third biggest bond market. spain brought down italy in the soccer finals. wouldn't be the first time. next thing i know there is someone squawking about how spain's largest bank has reported a a horrible quarter. all i can think is this is a bank that was healthier with the stock symbol std than it is now
with san and that's a public health first. after hearing some down beat clowns talking about half a dozen companies, including siemans were reporting disappointing earning because europeans are frittering while rome and madrid burned. half an hour on the treadmill and next thing you know, you've got a real ugly day on your hands. why? because of europe. so i shower, shave, put on a suit. jump in the car. work on the morning memo skewed to how horrible europe is. [ booing ] [ train wreck ] i write a piece to touch on the euro weakness and the apocalypse and how the spanish bonds continue to trade like they will default. the next thing you know, then i'm downtown where i slam my p.c. shot after looking at the red ink throughout the screen
and the future is getting ugly because of europe. jump out of the car and go get my coffee. same stand, same time, same drink every day as i have for a decade. i always get down there early. although now i've been up for four hours, and i hate to mismore than a minute of trading between when i get up and get out of my car. but today some joker is ordering hazelnut coffee ahead of me. somehow the order is mixed up. he's got regular. he's unhappy and is demanding hazelnut and i'm going nuts because it is taking forever. he's finally served. i run upstairs and bingo, the market is up huge. the dow which was looking down about 40 points is now looking up 200 points. 200 points? why? because the european version of ben bernanke says he'll preserve
the euro and these big sovereign bonds markets by any means necessary. goog t that. you'll see. in the time it took to get some coffee mostly because of the hazelnut nut the market took off by 2% like the time i went out to grab burger king and the berlin wall came down in the time it took to have it my way. suddenly everything hideous up huge, except for facebook, of course. the best performing security, the spanish five-year bond that was the worst when i was on the treadmill and got me thinking about building a fallout shelter. the one that the bears were talking about. everything people gave up on that you wanted to sell out in disgust or desperation because of european dithering is roaring. because the europeans aren't dithering anymore. will it last? no. it never does. that's why caution is still the watch word.

i think it's clear that things in the united states are better than you think. not great by any stretch of the imagine nax -- imagination, but not that horrible either. csx is the best run railroad. while coal carloads which everybody is worried about were down 14% from the year before export coal was up year over year. meanwhile excluding coal csx carloads were up 4% with terrific strength in industrial including phenomenal automobile lovers. csx had an optimistic outlook. to get a better sense of how they are doing and a broader read on the u.s. economy i'm thrilled to have michael ward, chairman and ceo of csx here tonight. welcome back to "mad money." >> glad to be here, jim. >> everyone wants to dwell on coal. i want to dwell on the u.s. economy. from what i heard a lot of things are going right, not wrong. >> you're right. if we take away the utility coal
that's way down the carloads were up 6% in the second quarter as they were in the first quarter. nothing spectacular, but just solid, steady growth. you alluded to automotive. that's gone gangbusters, up 27% in the quarter year over year. >> that's a big part of the u.s. economy. >> absolutely. >> you have to buy them, build, sell them. when i see that it tells me that while dow chemical, an important company reported today, the u.s. is really coming down. that would be reflected in the numbers you gave me. it's not. >> the expectation is 13.1 million light vehicle production last year. 14.9 is the expectation this year. >> one of the biggest we have had. >> absolutely. >> you have a bunch of things. you have a terrific slide presentation. intermodal export coal, automotive and chemicals are favorable. that's 58% of the volume. >> absolutely. as we look at the third quarter we think 80% of the markets are stable to up. only a few markets are challenged.
utility coal will continue to be challenged but not as severely. >> natural gas and warm weather. >> and the epa as well. do you know what's interesting? you mentioned the coal concern. >> right. >> let me give you one perspective. we knew by 2015 a lot of older coal fired plant would be shut down because of epa regulations. >> right. >> all that's happened is it happened more quickly. in 2006 we had 1.5 million carloads of utility coal. last year we had one million. lost a third of the business. >> that's big expense. that's a lot of money per car. >> people would think it would have our company in trouble. in those six years we set records in five of the six. the only one we didn't was 2009 which was our second best year at the time. through intermodal, automotive, productivity we have managed to keep the profitability up even with the decline in utilities. >> i want to take issue with one of the lines here. you have neutral. what's good, bad, neutral.
forest products, demand for housing -- for building products recovering slowly. hasn't that changed? i'm watching the price of lumber go up, listening to home builders. you may be too pessimistic on that one. >> we are seeing growth, but the base is way down. >> that's a good point. >> percentage base may look healthy, but it is so far down from what it was in the past. it's still not significant in the overall scheme of things. it is encouraging that it is moving in the right direction. >> you call out. i know that one of the problems with coal is natural gas. you call out chemicals getting better. that's natural gas. you also talk about fracking and oil and gas and drilling. how's it going? >> good. it's a nice new market for us. lots of excitement around it. natural gas drilling is here to stay. we're also finding opportunities in the shale for oil cars to come east in tank cars. we think that's a great
opportunity going forward. >> many people feel, listen, you're gdp and nothing else. the productivity gain is amazing. you have a new hub you said would be big. it is big. >> northwest ohio is doing great. it's doing everything we thought. it's cost effective. we are saving money using it and it is opening new markets for us. on the productivity side, jim, we started the year with # 130 million in productivity. we are expecting 180 million plus. >> how do you do that? there are not that many people involved in a train. diesel fuel, you're a huge user. it's working your way. how do you get productivity gains given that you have been getting them for years and years? >> what's happening is we are providing high levels of service to customers now. contrary to some people's belief, good service is less expensive. we have less recrews, better car utilization, locomotive utilization.
so we're running a high level service for the customers and it's cost effective. >> i was talking to david faber and he said how many more cars can you add before the trains go too slowly and you can't do the numbers. >> we have good room for growth. on the intermodals we could add 10% to 15%. that's as they exist today. on the merchandise side 15 to 20%. we have room to add to existing trains. and as you know, that's great incrementality. >> one of the problems we are having in this problem is agriculture. you allude to the fact that ag could be a tough market for you. you have always been a dominant ag player, fertilizer and crops. >> and, jim, it's getting worse. you go back two weeks ago it was 141 bushels per acre. it's down in the 130s now. the drought will affect that and the fertilizer market as well.
we have to deal with what we have. unusual movements in grains to feed the pigs and chickens. >> let me ask you philosophically. if you wanted to save -- i'm asking from -- perspective. he says why don't the railroad guys start buying new natural gas engines? next thing you know they are saving money on diesel fuel. is that going to happen? >> i don't know. there's been research done but there are challenges to that. you put that behind and right now we cannot have a device that's explosive behind a locomotive by law. if we have a chemical car it has to be further back in the train to protect the crews should there be an accident. >> okay. >> there are issues to work around with the idea. in the old days with steam locomotives, obviously the coal was no risk. and you have to think about the infrastructure you have to build to put that gas in the locomotives. >> one last question. it's always crazy to me.
a railroad has to worry about european demand. >> yes. our export coal, about half of it goes to europe for both thermal and steel making. obviously we hope europe resolves their issues, jim. >> nobody's all domestic. michael ward, fabulous job. making money when you shouldn't be given the coal exposure. chairman, president and ceo of csx corp. this is a cheap stock. looking for a stock that can still go up, take a look at csx. >> announcer: coming up, oh doctor. investors bid up shares of covidian after strong sales of medical devices. is there still room for the company to make a healthy run higher? cramer is giving his prognosis in an exclusive with the ceo next. hey!

central bank is making soothing noises. but it's nice to hear something positive from europe for once. what do i mean when i talk about safety? companies with big dividends are part of the equation. so are companies that are well run with stock beaten down so there is nowhere to go but up. then there is the shawshank contingent. companies that understand they either have to get busy living or get busy dying like cov, the topnotch medical equipment maker that just this morning reported a terrific quarter. a thing of beauty. stock is up 4.6%. i have been a big fan because it is breaking up. spinning off the pharmaceutical division which i believe is preventing the company from a premium valuation. after the spin off which should happen by the middle of next year the device company will represent 81% of sales. this will with a fabulous medical device. today we find out there is more to the story than a simple break-up play. not just that management is
taking drastic action. they are also executing like champs. they beat the estimate by a penny and the revenues were in line year over year as the weakness in europe was offset by, quote, outstanding growth in emerging markets. this is a company that makes a lot of acquisitions. we really want to care about the organic growth which tells you how the underlying business is doing excluding deals. that's what was terrific here. the organic growth was tremendous. it was up close to 6% in the u.s. medical device business up 8%. seems like they are doing a tremendous job while we wait for the pharma spin-off. don't take it from me. let's check in with the chairman and ceo to learn more about this quarter and where the company is headed. welcome back to "mad money." >> thank you. how are you, jim? >> real good. but not as well as you. after i went through every medical device play you had the best growth and you did it with
the least risk. why is it they are saying how, given the fact that everyone else had negative second quarter numbers were you able to have the strongest results of any large cap company in your business? >> it's about choices, jim. we made a significant amount of choices a few years ago in terms of the space we participate. it was about portfolio management in a tough allocation of capital internally in the company. today's results, we were able to capitalize in great growth and then launching a new product 18 months ago they are getting to peak sales now. our neurovascular, peripherals business is doing well and emerging markets. all the things are kicking in. because we are a larger company today we have the ability to hedge our bets and be able to have a balanced portfolio across the globe. >> one thing that stuck out is a lot of companies in your
business don't spend a lot on research and development. you're spending 5.3% of sales, increased 15%. what bang for the buck does it give you? >> that gives us a significant amount of growth on a yearly basis. the organic growth is coming in great part by the investments in r & d. if you think about covidien in relation to competitors, we are lagging behind on spending and r & d, hence the growth of 15%. i would like to highlight that we also invest in a significant amount of r & d in emerging markets. we have centers in india and china where we are starting to do r & d for exclusively emerging markets. >> how much of the business are people electing to have something with covidien and how much is a matter of course. you're sick, you use covidien. >> i will tell you most of our business are for people who need
and must use our products. in terms of elective procedures we have a little bit of elective procedures but most of what we do is acute care in hospitals. >> isn't that why europe was strong for you, spain. you don't see the decline some companies have talked about with weakness in europe. >> well, we do have good growth in places like germany, france, somehow uk. we were surprised with the decline of spain. as i said before, at one point in time people need to get the treatment. treatment is what we offer. i'm happy to be in a business that has a portfolio that's so balanced that allows us to go through crisis in a more even way. >> i have been telling people that when the supreme court upheld obama care this is great for companies that sell into large hospitals. you have an entrenched base in large hospitals.
were you thrilled that justice roberts sided with the democrats and said that this law should stand in this country? >> you know, jim, we are all for access of health care. so as the population in the u.s. grows and have access to health care it's a good thing for our people. it's a good thing for our company. so when we look at the advantage in a market where large hospitals and acos will be present, covidien offers a large portfolio of products that can be beneficial for the clinician, patient, hospital and covidien. >> it's so small it can't move the needle. i don't want to get ahead of myself because i get excited when i see someone moving into china. russia is doing the best of the brazil, russia, india and china. how important are those markets now and where will they be five years from now?
>> they are very important. we are over a billion dollars in emerging markets today. our plan is four to five years to double to $2 billion. they are becoming more important to covidien. it's not only penetration in emerging markets. it's the penetration where the right products. we do not sell every product in emerging markets, but we sell the products that make more sense for the markets and patients in those markets. >> thank you, joe. chairman, ceo and president of covidien. terrific return with less risk than almost everybody else. thank you, sir. >> thank you, jim. >> company's breaking up. company's got a good balance sheet. great r & d. company's got the great product. this is the stock you buy after the hoopla over what happens in germany and what happens in europe dies down. that's why i like covidien. stick wit. stay with cramer. >> announcer: coming up, omg not. don't believe the hype today.

sprint and zynga. could there be a greater contrast? two stocks on two very different paths. two stocks that passed each other today. one going up, one going down. a robert frost moment. two stocks diverge and if you took the one less traveled by it's made all the difference. sprint looked like it was headed to bankruptcy because of losses and the need for capital. now on the strength of excellent execution and sheer ingenuity from one of my favorite ceos sprint's future is bright and the $2 ugly duckling is a $4 swan. i think they can go higher. in part because it is hated by analysts. many of whom will be forced to upgrade the stock thanks to the operating improvement. zynga, on the other hand -- booing ] >> is part of a group of stocks, the second wave of hyped internet names this time with a
sexy social rubric attached that have blown up in people's faces in a horrendous way. witness how facebook imploded after hours after it reported the first quarter as a publically traded company. it was rocked hitting an all-time low after the 8% decline today. zynga, it is still too early to buy. it was $15 and it's now $3. it was much loved by wall street, incluing today, before it reported a hideous quarter losing 40% of value in a session as a slew of brokerage houses took it off the buy list. what was it doing on there anyway? how could this company which was guiding for earnings gains of 23 to 29 cents telling us it could learn four to nine cents. the one thing they have in common is that the clueless analysts who follow both stocks have done a terrible job of adding any value. in fact, they have subtracted from it. i think sprint's in it for the long haul. it is making more money per subscriber than it was a few months ago. it's embraced the iphone and has
the best bargains for customers when it comes to data use. the rally in common stock will help continue to raise capital needed to transition nextel customers to sprint. they will lap up all the new high yielding bonds they can issue. how about zynga. i'm addicted to scramble with friends and i have learned never to play for anything including the little yellow gold coins that help you win. i like the free aspect of the games. from the earnings i'm not the only one who won't pay up. the earnings are pointing to losses, not gains and the nature of gains. omg pop, it makes it unpredictable. so many stocks are left for dead when they get to two bucks, including nokia and radio shack. it's a rare bird that can come out of the $2 death trap. sprint is one of them. zynga, welcome to the graveyard that the wall street cheerleaders whistled past
though they should have seen it coming. they should be ashamed of themselves for a recommendation that reminds me of the first internet wave which crashed on the shore drowning everyone involved including analysts who told us to come in because the water was fine. the most tragic thing about zynga is this was so easy to see coming. never forget. those who forget the market's history are doomed to repeat it. stick with cramer. organic artichokes, organic lettuce, organic kale... does your cauliflower have a big carbon footprint? not at all. that's great. melons!!! oh yeah!! well that was uncalled for. uhh... mr. gallagher. incoming!!! hahaha! it's wasteful. you know jimmy. folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy, ronny? happier than gallagher at a farmers' market. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. time out. sweet.

just like we were afraid of, facebook reported a truly disastrous number. massive deceleration. not what we wanted to see. they needed to kill it and they did the opposite. the people who were selling from the get-go knew more than the people who were buying. i don't want to touch it. starbucks is a great growth company. it was not a good quarter. that doesn't mean it can't be further down the road. good quarter for amazon. shows you've got to keep doing the homework. initially it cre
